The newspaper claims that City will demand the Bundesliga Champions to pay a fee in the region of £145 million to secure the services of the 23-year-old, though Pep Guardiola is still hoping that Sane will commit his future to the club by signing a new deal to remain at the Etihad.
However, Sane represents a more permanent option for the replacement of Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery who both departed over the summer after long spells commanding the flanks in Munich.
Manager Pep Guardiola, who joined Manchester City from Bayern in 2016, said of the situation, “He [Sane] has to decide. If he wants and there is an agreement, then it’s good. But if he wants to leave, he can do it.”
In that time, he has made 134 appearances for the Sky Blues in all competitions. In the 2018/19 season, he played on 31 occasions, 11 of those coming from the bench, which was a significant increase compared to the previous term.
Assisting 15 meant he narrowly missed out on having the Premier League’s highest number of assists to teammate Kevin de Bruyne.
Although, his record of four goals and four assists in eight Champions League appearances was outstanding and helped City reach the quarter-final where they lost to eventual runners up Tottenham Hotspur.
